I’m a nerd. I’m not ashamed. I can hold my head high. (I’m a Gleek too, and damn proud of that, as well!)
I especially set off the nerd-o-meter when it comes to knitting. That’s why I’m taking photos of pattern books, writing down yarn requirements and storing it all on my phone. All in preparation for heading to Stitches Midwest tomorrow.
I’ve been perusing my stash of knitting books and have narrowed it down to four of my favorite faves. You know, those “I’ve got to knit that” patterns? It comes down to these:
Wrenna from Kristeen Griffin-Grimes’ French Girl Knits:
Seaport Skirt from Kristina Mcgowan’s Modern Top Down Knitting:
Dutch Touch from Debbie Stoller’s Stitch ‘N Bitch Superstar Knititng:
And, Ingenue from Wendy Bernard’s Custom Knits (I love her blog, Knit and Tonic, too):
I know I should try and get a few hours of shut eye before My Big Day at Stitches tomorrow, but I’m too excited to sleep. Kind of like the night before a big chess tournament. Just kidding. I don’t really play in chess tournaments. But I’m still a nerd.
